11 Artificial Christmas Trees More Glorious Than The Real Thing

Time to branch out.

An artificial Christmas tree may just be the best gift you can give yourself this year.

Ordering a faux tree is easier than strapping the fresh-cut version to your car, and fake trees require none of the watering, fireproofing and sweeping of pine needles that so often compound holiday stress. Perhaps best of all, you can use an artificial tree year after year without paying for a new one. And many even come with lights already attached!

Fake trees can be a win for the environment, too, if you keep yours for a while. The chemicals and energy used to make artificial trees actually impact the environment more than harvesting a real one: One study from an environmental consulting firm found you'd need to keep your artificial tree for 20 years in order to leave the planet healthier overall.

These beautiful finds have us more than ready to invest in the faux market:
